The National Party has unveiled its long-awaited tax relief plan, which could see some families $125 better off, per week.

National is promising to introduce four new taxes to cover the cost, including a levy on foreign buyers who will once again be able to purchase houses here.

The party would also scrap cheaper public transport and use money meant for lowering emissions to pay for the tax cuts.
